Only a couple of days more to go:
NAME FOR FAME
INVENT A TRICK OR THROW DOWN AN OLD CLASSIC IN A COMPLETELY NEW WAY, NAME IT AND SEND US THE EVIDENCE … and you could be the WINNER of a super fly Amplid snowboard/skis.
Jon Olson gave us the Kangaroo flip. Halldor Helgason’s warped mind invented the Lobster flip. 1970’s Hot Dogging extraordinaire Eddie Lincoln whipped his rear-entry boots and straight skis through the first Lincoln Loop. Remember Jim Rippey and Terje Haakonson? Yep you guessed it, they’ve both got inverts named after them too. Now it is time for you to join the club.
Amplid wants you to create a completely new trick or add your own little twist to a classic. An Andrecht handplant with a Chicken Salad grab could be a ‘Saladplant’, or an underflip on a step-down could be a ‘down-under flip’. Who knows what trickery you’ve got stashed away in your own private arsenal of bangers, but if it’s unique we want to see it. Once you’ve nailed your signature trick and captured it on video or in a photo, we want you to send us the footage. If your entry is the judge’s favourite you will win an Amplid Dopamine Snowboard or Provoke Skis depending on which way you like to slide
